Compositions are always difficult when trying to work from reference photographs. Human eyes don’t see things in a solid rectangular frame, and the contextual bias is always formed from sight. It helps when you take your own photographs, or work from life, since you get a tactile understanding of what the objects involved are doing and how light and darkness plays out. The color relationship is also something that needs to be seen physically to fully grasp. The hardest thing to do was separate the conventional notion of what the thing is supposed to be, and what it looks like in context. The reflected lighting from the surroundings and the compositional flow of the picture forced compromises between the eyes and paper.
